You might be making a brand new website for your business OR thinking about your current marketing strategy when the question arises...do I need to have a blog on my website? 

fact 1

 

The answer is yes.

Most business owners say: "But, I'm in the (insert your industry here)... a blog doesn't seem like a good fit for my site." 

 

You don’t have to call it a blog. It could be called tips, news, resources, journal, etc., but if you want to have a successful website online, you need to have a place for content creation. You don't need to blog every day. Just update the space with awesome content as often as you can (weekly is ideal, but monthly can suffice).

 

Almost every business has one

Every successful company has a content marketing strategy. Coca-Cola finally hired a Chief Marketing Officer this year. Even a company as successful and old as Coke has had to turn a new page and bow to the content gods.

fact 2

 

It’s an important part of content marketing

Consider the content section as a way to start a dialogue with potential customers. It’s a part of your site where you create online content (articles, infographics, ebooks, videos, etc.) that is intended to help, engage, or educate users. This content is not brand heavy as that would be promotion material (which is entirely different).

 

The benefits of content marketing:

  • Shares your brand’s voice

  • Builds your brand’s credibility

  • Creates and keep relationships with your audience

  • Generates traffic to your site

  • Increases leads

  • Sets you apart from the rest of your competition

  • Increases the chances of something going viral

  • Drives return customers

  • Improves SEO

  • Tends to be cheaper than other forms of marketing (if done correctly)

 

It’s on the rise

Content marketing is on the rise as more companies see the benefits of creating their own original content. If you aren't producing anything right now, you need to! A blog or spot for content on your site is a must.

 

Use social media as a tool

 Not only should you create the content, but share it on social to get more views. It will help gain trust with your audience because they will see you an industry expert!
